Esteile Taj loe Paine, John Paine, Ogle Tayloe
Paine and John W. Paine, cf New York, for the
sale of the house and lot at the northeast corner
of K and 2<>th streets. The complainants,
as relrs-at-law of Owen Murray, who died in
1S57, are entitled to one half of this property,
of which they claim the defendants have kept
forcible possession. A suit of ejectment was
entered in 1879 and a judgment rendered In
favor of the complainants. They now lay bsfore
the court the impracticability of dividing
the house and lot, and ask that it be ordered
sold, and that the defendants ba required to
render an account of rentals, &c . received.
John E. Kendall yesterday filed a bill in
equity against Thos. F. Shoemaker and others
to vacate the conveyances of sub-lot ?2. suuare

was made to avoid attachment for judgment.

Virginia. Republicans and tlie Headjuster's
Convention*
The Virginia Republican Association met last
night in St. George's hall, 11th street northwest,
W. F. Cooper (president) in the chair, and
John A. Cooper, secretary. The delegation
appointed at a former meeting to wait on the
President to urge the restoration of John A.
Moss to h's former library position at the Capitol
reported that the President Informed them
that he believed that Moss had been wronged,
and that at a more convenient time he would
give the matter some attention; and that he
invited the committee to call on him hereafter,
when he would have more time to consider t'ae
matter. Mr. Scott Wood moved that two delegates
be elected to represent this association in
the readjuster state convention to oe held in
Richmond on the 2d of June. A lively discussion
arose between Messrs. Mitchell and Mo;s
as to the propriety of sending delegates to meet
in a readjuster convention, without Invitation.
Air. Mitchell took the ground that the call was
not a joint one, and for that reason it was
entirely improper for republicans to pay any
attention to it. The secretary was asked to
read the call, as published in the Richmond
wh o, and it was read. It was directed exclusively
to the readjuster party, and the motion
to elect delegates was thereupon unanimously
voted c!o?n. Letters were re-ad from several
prominent Virginia republicans urging a combination
of t he factions in the fall election as
the only means of defeating the Bouroor.s m
the coming contest. The meeting adjouraed
subject to the ca-l of thp president.

having had carnal intercourse by force with
his daughter, Ella, a girl 14 years of age, on
the iom of May. Iu the Police Court this
morning the assistant district attorney stated
that in view of the condition of the girl he
had directed that the witnesses go before the
grand Jury at once, and he suggested that tne
cafe here be postponed. He asked that tlie
bonds be fixed at $2,000 for appearance of the
prisoner. Judge Sneli remarked that
this case showed the necessity of some law in
this District on the subject of incest.

forgeiy in the Polics Court yesterday, was today
put on trial for the larceny of a lot of p:at -d

The f brihtiancv Divorce Case.
MISS HELOY DiCLINES TO BK CBOSS-EXAMtNKO.
The divorce suit of ex Senator Cbrlstlancy, j
against his wife, Mrs. Llllle Chrtetlancy, nee '
Lugenbeel, was resumed yesterday afternoon. '
before Examiner Lovejoy. It was expectel
tliat Miss Llllle Meloy would be called for crossexamination,
but a letter was reau from her
stating that she was confined to the house by
slcknes?. Sbe sent a physician's certificate in
support cf the statement, and went on to say
that she had submitted to a tedious examination,
and told all that sbe knew, and that she
declined to appear for a cross-examination,
which would only be long and irksome. Mr.
Irgersoll Eald If Miss Meloy was too sick to atteLd
tbey would wait until she recovered. It 1
would not be necessary to have prolonged sessions
if wearisome to her, but they might cut
them up into short ones for her accommodation.
Mr. Cook, the counsel of Mrs. Christ,lancy,
to settle the difficulty, offered to withdraw the
testimony already given by Miss Meloy. Mr. '
Ingersoll objected to that being done, claiming 1
that as it was in now and a part of the case, it 1
must remain until stricken out by the chance!lor.
Miss Meloy, he said, bad given her testi- I
mony, and had been turned over to them for i .
cross-examination. They insisted that they were ' 1
entitled to the evidence, and If they could not : j
procure the witness' presence In any other 1
way tbey would ask the court for an attach- !
ment to have her brought before the examiner. 1

Mr*. Doberty'a Fatal Fall.
TH* CO BO NEB'S IH^UEST?THE HUSBAND E50KEBATBD.
The coroners inquest in the case of the tragic
SL ^rs- -Honora Doherty Wednesday
night, by falling from a window of her residence,
on 3d street northwest, too* place yeaday
afternoon at the healtn office, on 4%
street. The jury were compesed of Messrs.
Joseph Torrens, Thos. Croggon, J. a. Main,
Wm. c. o'Mera, P. Miller and M. D. Overacker.
TH* TESTIMONY.
Dr. James R. Riley, the family physician,
testified that he had been attending Mrs. D.
since the 24th instant for nervous prostration
and loss of rest. He visited her Wednesday,
and finding her worse advised that she be sent
tn the hospital. She was taken to Providence
hospital by the husband and a hackman named
Tnomas Crcggon, who returned about lo o'clock
with her, her condition being such that she
could not be received there. She was delirious
and required constant watching, but had lucid
intervals. IMaiy Johnson, colored, testified that
she heard Doherry tell his wife that night than
at e bad botberc d him for five nigh'8 and thit he
would put an end to It. Peter Briscoe testlilei
to hearing loud talking In that house. I/mtsa
Turner testified that while she was washing
the dead body of Mrs. D. the bereaved husband
said he did not care a d?n for the dead
woman, she would not do what he told her to.
THB HUSBAND'S STATEMENT.
John Doherty. the husband of the deceased
woman, testified that Dr. Riley told him than
his wife must be taken to the hospital; that lie
and Mrs. Kelly got her Into a hack against her
will; she old not want to go; on the wayta^rj
thpy told her that they were going to the
Scheutzen park. The sister in charge at Providence
hospital refused to receive her. Witness
told the sister that as soon as senator Ho?r
returned he would see how much money Is to
be hereafter appropriated for that hospital and
how it is expended. He then took hl3 wife home
and conducted her up stairs, while his son was
closing up the house. He went down stairs to
get a pitcher of water, and when returning with
it caught his wife going out of the front window.
A halt second more and she would nave
been out. He persuaded her to He down, but
she would not permit the boy to sleep ar, her
side. Witness laid down beside her and pinned
their clothing together, so she could not get up
without disturbing him, but somehow she did,
and when he awoke he found that she had gone.
Witness jumped up, and, looking through ttte
room, could net find her. The dog ran to the
door,which led htm to believe that she had gone
out. He looked out and saw ner lying across
the cart, she said, "Poppa, who are ycu looking
for?-' He said, "Heavenly Jesus, what are
you doing there?" She was all covered with
blood. With help he got her into the house,
when such a sight he never saw and hope-1
never to see again. Witness started for tlxe
doctor and got Dr. Townshend; saw him put
his finger under the skin of her head and he
went to the hall and fell.
Dr. Haitigan testified to the nature of the
wounds, and said they could have been made
by the fall.
Dr. Townshend testified that Mrs. D. died
while he was examining her wounds, she was
sensible enough to have made an accusation
had she desired to do so.
THB VERDICT.
The jury thereupon returned a verdict that
she came to her death from injuries to the heal
received in falling from a window, while laboring
under temporary aberration of mind. Tin
coroner immediately ordered the discharge of
Mr. Doherty. s
A DENIAL.*
Dr Hartlgan, assistant coroner, desires the
statemeht that he and physicians, who made
the post mortem examination of Mrs. Doherty
yesterday prior to the inquest, were driven
from the place by Mr. Doherty. He states th u
no such thing happened at all. Mr. Djhtrcy
was axclted, but mere was no pistol or other
offensive or defensive weaDons used, nor was
there any occasion for them.

case of Francis A Prescott, under indictment
In the criminal court of the District ror forging
